Former Olympic and Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Susan Egelstaff joined Badminton Scotland players Ben Torrance and Josh Neil for a knockabout in Central Station.
And they encouraged passersby to take part in an early morning game on their way through the station.
Glasgow 2014's official mascot Clyde was also on hand to get as many people as possible involved.
Susan, who retired after competing at London 2012, said: "It was great to see the interest in badminton at Central Station, it's such a fast-paced and exciting sport and it was fantastic to see people from all walks of life pick up a racket and have a shot.
"A real buzz was generated with commuters embracing the sport. Glasgow is going to showcase the best of the sport next summer, with the likes of double Commonwealth champion and world No.1 Lee Chong Wei striving for Gold."
Sports fans have until 6pm on Monday to apply for tickets for Glasgow 2014.
There are 22 sessions of badminton throughout the 11 days of the Games including men's, women's, doubles and mixed competitions. They will be held in the £113million Emirates Arena in Glasgow's East End.
The latest ticketing report, released by Glasgow 2014 last week, revealed fans still had a good chance of securing a ticket to watch the fast-paced sport.
Ty Speer, deputy chief executive of Glasgow 2014, said the Games were a once- in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the best sports in the world.
He said: "Badminton is amazing to watch once you get to know it.
"It is athletic, it is fast, it is competitive and, really, from a sports point of view, you are not going to see it being played in this country - at this level - again for a long time.
"This is world class competition".
